I can't handle it any more. I now remember why I said with my son that I would never have another child The zofran isn't even working--it works for like an hour or two, and I'm back to being so sick that I can't even function. I'm not throwing up a ton, but the nausea is awful. DH works nights, and he's been waking up around 11, and I stay in bed until he leaves for work around 4. I just can't do anything. I'm feeding my kids crap (okay, not really, probably better than most kids, but crap for them) because I can't stand looking at food to cook. I don't want to hold them because the pressure on my stomach makes it worse. I hate the way I feel. This is the way I felt with my son, and I had it through delivery even. I felt a bit better with my daughter, and it went away around 12 weeks, and came back in my third trimester. I just don't feel like I can make it through the day. I would be in bed already if my kids would go to sleep. I hate feeling this way. This pregnancy had a really rocky start, and I feel bad complaining, like I'm not grateful that the baby is still with me. I am happy, but I wish I could be one of those glowing pregnant women that never have any nausea. I've paid my dues, I just want to feel good this time. Thanks for letting me have a pity party. People who have never experienced this don't understand, so I'm getting a lot of "well, just make yourself eat" or "try ginger ale." Yeah, like I haven't tried that. I lost around 20 pounds with both of my kids in the first half of the pregnancy, and I'm trying to avoid it. I'm on both zofran and phenergan and I'm going to go broke paying for them, and they're not even helping.
